Join the guys twice each week for six lively minutes of discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Chuck & Glen, and sometimes a surprise guest, all have their own opinions. Sometimes they agree and sometimes they don’t, but the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun.

Hinge Gains:

Hinges vary, so why shouldn’t hinge gains? And we’re not just talking about a 2″ hinge versus a 3″ one. Depending on how (and where) the hinge is made you can get variations in thickness, width and length from hinge to hinge. Sometimes they even vary from one leaf of the hinge to the next. So, what’s a woodworker to do? Our best advice is to mark and fit each leaf individually. That sounds like lots of work, and it is, but the end result is definitely worth the effort.
